Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
The locking mechanism on my kitchenaid mixer has stopped working. It will slide into the locked position, but when alittle upward pressure is applied (like when mixing dough) the head lifts and the switch slides into an unlocked position.
This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.
If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.
Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.
Hope this helps!

It sounds like the bowl lock lever is damaged or broken. It could be the beater adjustment but sounds more like the bowl lock lever. It requires taking apart the mixer, but is actually a fairly easy repair.
Page 15, figure 6 of the service manual talks specifically about this part, here is a link to the service manual: http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf
